A working meeting as part of the Joint Coordinating Committee of Gazprom and CNPC moderated by Vitaly Markelov, Deputy Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Huang Yongzhang, Vice President of CNPC, took place via a video link.

The meeting participants discussed a wide range of issues related to the cooperation between the companies. Among other things, the parties agreed upon the dates of preventive maintenance to be performed on the Power of Siberia gas pipeline in the spring of 2022. It was noted that the Russian party is currently supplying even more gas via the eastern route than is provided for by its obligations.

Particular attention at the meeting was paid to further steps in the implementation of the project for Russian gas supplies to China via the Far Eastern route.
